This week has been a busy old time for events and today’s post is being dedicated to taking a look at the PURE Spa blogger event I attended on Wednesday. The whole concept of the event was designed to showcase PURE Spa’s most popular treatments during the Christmas period. We were treated to a some bubbly, tropical juices, a selection of sushi, cupcakes and various other yummy things! That was probably just what I needed because I got absolutely drenched in the torrential rain before I arrived at the Spa…hence my awful rat hair in the pictures!
We were asked to pick a treatment at random – they were all kept a secret up until we opened our chosen folded pieces of paper. I had prayed to the gods that I would get a massage and my prayers were answered! I got the Relaxing Massage option and it was just what I needed at the time! My shoulders and back had been so knottted up lately. We were split into two groups – one group went off to receive their 30 minute treatments and a couple of us got a file and polish using Leighton Denny products. My beauty therapist was absolutely lovely and we ended up having a very deep conversation! I have mentioned Leighton Denny products on my blog a few times before and I absolutely love the brand. For my polish, I selected a deep glossy plummy red called Passion – a perfect autumnal shade! I was shocked to see how fast my manicure dried using the Leighton Denny Miracle Drops! It’s definitely a product I will be picking up very soon because I’m always in a rush and end up smudging my polish before I even get out of the front door!
Once my manicure was fully dry, myself and Kirsty were escorted through to the treatment rooms to get our complimentary massages – Kirsty had the Deep Tissue Massage. We changed into our white robes and flip flops and schlepped on through to our treatment rooms. I love the treatment rooms at PURE Spa because they’re cosy, inviting and they always make me feel instantly relaxed. I had my relaxing massage with Sarah and she immediately made me feel at ease. I think it’s so important to be comfortable with the person who is giving you a massage because ultimately you want to feel completely relaxed to get the most out of the experience.
My 30 minute treatment was blissful to say the least and I came out of the massage feeling so calm, rejuvenated and stress-free. My therapist, Sarah, recommended I come for one massage a month to help ease the knots in my shoulders as they had been causing me a lot of discomfort. I had always seen massages as such a luxury and rather indulgent but in reality, they are something that keeps your body in check, frees you of stress and help you sleep better at night.
I couldn’t have been happier with my file & polish and my relaxing massage and I had an even bigger smile on my face when I was handed a goody bag filled with Elemis, Ren and Leighton Denny products! I loved the nail colour I had applied SO much that I ended up buying a full size bottle on the night. I can see myself wearing it through Autumn and Winter.
